are hoping the first of three presidential debates tomorrow night will be a game-changer for mitt romney. right now he trails the president in every battleground state. a new quinnipiac poll out this morning shows president obama has an 18 point lead over romney among women. nbc's brian mooar joins us from washington with more on all this. brian, good morning. >> reporter: for both campaigns this first debate is filled can challenge and opportunity. as denver gets ready for tomorrow night's first presidential debate, so are the candidates. >> it'll be a conversation with the american people that will span almost an entire month. we'll get to describe our respective views. >> reporter: romney is hoping to pick up a few votes with an endorsement from football great john elway. president obama is taking the personal approach to nail down support. >> this is barack obama. >> reporter: and like romney, the president sees this debate as a chance to talk to america. >> it's a choice between two different paths for this country. it's a choice between two fundamentally different visions for our n
expectations. is this just that? >> you heard that from mitt romney. it's how you play the game. right. let's be honest. you heard the same thing from president obama sunday night at his rally in colorado. i think it also matters who wins or loses. both candidates in their final debate prep. mitt romney had the rally in colorado last night. he's hunkering down with the senator playing obama. you won't see much of mitt romney until wednesday night. same thing for the president. he's in nevada. he'll fly to denver on wednesday. he's got senator john kerry playing mitt romney in the debate preps. the president did have a chance to talk to a few people. he delivered some pizzas to the local obama for reelection campaign office out there. very nice of them. delivering pizza to the workers. he also talked about not getting out much. take a listen. >> basically they're keeping me indoors all the time. it's a drag. they're making me do my homework. >> wow, wow. this is john. he's doing his homework. >> also you have some new polls for us. where are we seeing the candidates now? >> nationally, this
in a choice for the voters between the romney obama agenda. >> gregg: all right. carl cameron, thanks very much. >> president obama arriving in las vegas moments ago. we'll have a live report a bit later in the newscast. >> heather: meantime, controversy growing over the deadly attack in libya. into new calls investigation in assault that killed chris steens and three other americans. more questions are being raised over the obama administration's official version of what happened. top lawmakers are demanding answers. steve centanni is live in washington with more on this. >> reporter: one is bob corker a member of the foreign relations committee saying the benghazi incident is more bizarre every day. he wrote a letter to the director of national intelligence. it says 18 days ago the administration judged it was appropriate for our consulate to be lightly guarded. what has changed in libya such a short time that our f.b.i. agents, most elite personnel cannot safely enter the city? meantime, republicans kept up the drum beat on the administration's response and the president's foreign polic
for governor romney n my mind, than senator mccain. no more theories. now we've resume. >> steve: that's right. and in fact, the romney camp has kinds of changed their strategy over the last couple of days publicly and now they're going to make it a choice. so many people know that the economics of our situation right now are horrible and if you look at history, there is no reason this president would be reelected given the past, if it's prologged, given the fact that unemployment is above 8% and gas prices close not closinn on 4 bucks. mr. romney presenting a choice, four more years of this, or the american people will get to determine what kind of america they want to live in. a mitt romney america or a barak obama america. >> gretchen: so no doubt that the two teams who are preparing both of these candidates are saying a lot of time figuring out, what are the negatives about the other guy or how do you get under the skin of the other guy to make it to your advantage with the american people? so last night charles krauthammer on "special report" had his theory about how mitt romney might be
on defense for most of the 90 minutes. president obama and mitt romney finally went head-to-head, right out of the gate, the candidates boiled down their economic arguments. >> governor romney has a perspective that says if we cut taxes, skewed toward the wealthy and roll back regulations that we'll be better off. i've got a different view. >> the president has a silar to the view he had whe rn an four years ago. if you will, trickle down government would work. that's not the right answer for america. >> reporter: romney's comments about the 47% have taken a toll on his campaign. even before that leaked video polls showed americans think he favors the wealthy over the middle-class. he clearly wanted to try and change that perception. >> the people who are having a hard time right now are middle-income americans. under the president's policies, middle-income americans have been buried. they're just being crushed. i will not under any circumstances raise taxes on middle-income families. >> reporter: but the president said his rival doesn't have the right solutions, and that romney can't keep
obama's team is conceding that mitt romney gained ground last night. >> that's right, george. obama campaign officials conceding that romney seems more polished. they say they expect he will get a bump in the polls. some obama allies telling me that the president last night seemed tired and bored. >> president obama and governor romney. >> reporter: it was a sweet start for the president, for what would end up something of a bitter pill. >> i just want to wish, sweetie, you, happy anniversary. and let you know, a year from now, we won't be celebrating it in front of 40 million people. >> i'm sure this was the most romantic place you could imagine. here with me. congratulations. >> reporter: and with that, former governor mitt romney began an aggressive prosecution of the last four years. invoking vice president biden's own word for what happened to the middle class. >> under the president's policies, middle-income americans are being buried. they're being crushed. >> reporter: and attacking the president's health care bill. >> i don't know how he could spend his energy and passion f
have been looking into and reporting on some of romney's debate preps. you're right, carol. you mentioned that romney was with gop senator rob portman. i got to tell you, it is surprising that romney wants to hang out with portman still since he has been playing president obama. by all accounts in the mock debates, portman has been very, very tough on romney, to prepare him for the real thing. portman is the go-to guy for republicans for debate prep. he's worked with republican candidates since 2000 and i spoke with senator portman in an exclusive interview about what he does to prepare to prepare romney. >> how they're likely to express themselves, what the body language is going to be like, try to imitate the person, but you try to give a fair presentation, you know to whoever you're working with as to what they're likely to do. >> now, portman and romney's other members of his inner cile have been doing mock debates with him on and off for about a month. he had his first round of debate boot camp at mock debates in vermont during the democratic convention and he's had it seve
in 2008 and i am doing it again in 2012 because i believe this man, met romney, is right person with the right experience at the right time to get america back is right track. america needs met romney. hip-hop i want you to go out and fight for these principles we believe i want you to stand up to make that 21st century another american century. i want you to share that message with your friends and neighbors and family members and the people you work with and the people you go to church with and with strangers on the street. it is time for all good men and all good women to come to the aid of their country. we have 33 days to get america back on the right track. so, augusta county, tonight, i want to ask you can, the only question that matters. 33 days away from is election day and i want you to shout at some of the people in stanton and harrison bergeron and waynesboro and stewart's strap here you -- the question is this. are you all ready to what? [applause] car you all ready to lead? are you all ready to win? heckling let's go get this thing done. thank you, everybody. god b
channel. coincidence, right? >> gretchen: both democrats and republicans said mitt romney won the debate. >> steve: most accurate polls are expected next week. instant polls. one pound found 67 percent of the voters thought mitt romney won and 25 percent thought president obama. was it a much-needed gamer. allor - author of the here comes the black helicopters . the loss of freedom. dick, how big of a bounce will mr. romney get? >> i would think four or five points. according to the current polls, that would take him from two or three behind to two or three ahead. in reality it will take him five nationally and put him in the lead significantly in florida and virge virge - virginia and a smaller lead in ohio. i did a study with my friend johnn, a fellow pollster and he looked at exit polls when voters came out of the voting booth. they were asked what is yourr party reference? democrats had a one point edge . went to 13 surveys done by the media in september, and he found in those, there was a combined 8 point democratic edge. those polls are 7 points wrong . so when they show in ohio th
't know. that's straight from romney's communications director. >> right. you have to wonder, will this be an issue in tonight's debate. the jeremiah wright was a racially tinged scandal, led the president to give the speech in philadelphia, widely hailed, race is a comb mrx issue in the country always has been. we have yet to perfect and come to terms with yet. here we are again. we'll see if this has -- an impact. whose base it may rile up or not rile up. >> yeah, a lot of people are questioning whether or not it is news. this was a covered speech. but according to some even within the abc family, they said at the time, the campaign only put out prepared remarks in a prepared newspaper, posted a nine-minute edited version. abc and networks, was based on prepared remarks, not really what was said at the podium. definitely aster that i'm sure many outlets will be following. >> going to get some attention for sure. a lot going on in politics. that brings us to our facebook question of the day today. >> yep. we want to know what are you hoping to hear from the candidates in to
romney, the obama camp thinks that plays right into the expectations and now it's raising them very high for mitt romney to have to shake it up in these debates, harris. >> harris: as we know from carl cameron that mr. romney has been at the campaign headquarters in boston preparing. why is the president in nevada? >> well, it's a battle ground state as you've noted earlier and i remember covering john kerry in 2004. a debate against the president, then president bush in arizona and did his debate prep in new mexico, a media attention in the battle ground state and he's trying to do that president obama in nevada and the foreclosure crisis and the unemployment rate double digits and the president knows economic challenges here and hoping he'll get a little play for his message and his plans and rally and it's going to start a few moments behind me with someone with early voting starting in nevada in a couple of weeks and they feel good in the obama camp. nevada even though it's hard hit, the polls show the race very close and they think mitt romney should be far ahead with the economic m
recent "real clear politics" average shows president obama leading with 47% of the vote, governor romney with 44. virginia has 13 electoral votes up for grabs. that's where john roberts is right now, live in fisher'sville, virginia. what is the event going on there today, john. >> country music star trace atkins will be joining governor romney and his running nature at 6:45 on stage. president obama won this state by six in 2008. governor romney trailing in the polls currently hoping to use his debate performance to narrow the gap. it was the first time the two candidates were on stage face-to-face, a chance for governor romney to one-on-one answer allegations that the obama campaign has been firing his way. one of them over this idea that governor romney is trying to implement a $5 trillion tax cut for the rich. he repeatedly answered that question for president until it finally came down to this. >> look i've got five boys. i'm used to people saying something that is not always true, but just keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping i'll believe it. but that is not the case, all righ
.z., right? >> no, absolutely not. and the thing is, is that mitt romney really seems to fungd well when he's coming from behind. so if there's anything that would give him any hope it's that when he seems to be coming from someone else has momentum, he can take that momentum, he seems to perform much better than has a front-runner. if he has any hope going in knowing expectations are extremely low for him, if he's able to take that and be aggressive and attack president obama, because let's face it the president is still extremely fuller inable. the only reason why romney isn't winning is because romney's been an absolute idiot the past two to three weeks. so if he can correct that by being aggressive, perhaps he can swing the momentum back to his favor. >> we like to use the word missteps. anna, let me give you the final word. president obama is vulnerable. he's been called a wonderful orator, that he mesmerizes audiences when he speaks, but he is vulnerable. where does romney have to strike him? >> look, i think romney needs to do what he did in the last two debates of the primary in flo
're thinking about right now is what's going to be the tone of mitt romney and president obama? what they want to know is what are you going to do? how are you going to make my life better over the next four years? we spent more time focused, talking about what -- when i say we i mean a broad media. superficial stuff, what color tie they have on, how are they standing, were they sighing as opposed to what had did they say? that's what matters to somebody sitting out there. >> this comes to someone criticizing the color of my tie before. >> dude, think about it. you need some color. >> governor strickland, i'm surprised how optimistic he s he sounds like the race is over and that obama has this sewn up. >> sour surrogate. >> kudos to him for saying what he believes. usually they play expectations down, talk about what a great debater obama is and how terrible romney strickland was sounding like it's over. >> i'm so tired of playing down expectations. >> me, too. romney is promising to honor temporary work permits for younger illegal immigrants who were allowed to remain in the u.s. after that e
short lead right now over mitt romney nationally. this is what the national numbers look like, 49 to 46 right now, barack obama. we should note that this race is really going to be won and lost in states where i stand right now. colorado. other states such as nevada, virginia, ohio. these are very important states that the candidates will be focusing all of their time on as we head into the spring, into november. carol? >> mark preston, reporting live from denver. >>> cnn has learned months before the 9/11 attack in libya that killed the u.s. ambassador and three other americans, there were security concerns surrounding the diplomatic mission in benghazi. the white house first called the attack spontaneous, the one in benghazi that killed the ambassador, but now says it was preplanned to terrorist linked to al qaeda. mike rogers of the house intelligence committee says key information was left out. >> picked pieces of information that fit a narrative that believed -- i don't want to question their motive, what they thought they were doing, whether it was political or not. it was clearly
for reinspection. >>> to politics now where president obama and rival mitt romney will not be campaigning today, opting instead to prep for the first of their three debates tomorrow night in denver. republicans are hoping it will be a game changer for their nominee. who right now trails the president in every battleground state. nbc's brian mooar joins us from washington with all the details. brian, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, lynn. for both campaigns, this first debate brings both challenge and opportunity. as denver gets ready for tomorrow night's first presidential debate, so are the candidates. >> it will be a conversation with the american people that will span almost an entire month. we'll get to describe our respective views. >> reporter: romney is hoping to pick up a few votes with an endorsement from football great john elway. president obama is taking the personal approach to nail down support. >> this is barack obama. >> reporter: and like romney, the president sees this debate as a chance to talk to america. >> it's a choice between two different paths for this country.
a little here. >> go right ahead. [laughter] >> a day or two before governor romney made his decision about his running mate, i was talking to another pollster. runs the democracy corps. they have been trying to use the ryan plan to beat republican members of congress over the head. like you said, nobody knew who paul ryan was. as we were getting off the phone, i said, i will give you this. i do not think governor romney is going to pick paul ryan. but if he does, we will have another conversation. it strikes me that democrats have not effectively made medicare and the rhine plan -- the ryan plan, i have seen the polling and how it moves people. i have not seen them in flicked a lot of bodily damage on republicans on the ryan plan, on medicare, so far. am i missing something? has it had a meaningful effect or not? >> the quick answer would be, we will find out in 33 days. >> apparently, we are going to find out in 33 days. [laughter] the first observation i make is that there is this presumption in the press, boy, paul ryan, what a risky mistake he was. test polls show that paul ryan genera
. >> that's what i like about you, faris. all right. >>> but first, the high-stakes drama tonight in denver. >> president obama and mitt romney facing off in the first of three debates. abc's karen travers is in denver with a preview. >> reporter: with president obama and mitt romney doing final debate preps, their running mates hit the campaign trail. vice president biden was speaking about romney's economic plans when he said this. >> how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. >> reporter: republicans call it a stunning admission that the middle class has been hurt by the obama administration's policies. congressman paul ryan pounced. >> of course, the middle class has been buried. they're being buried by regulations. they're being buried by taxes. is they're being buried by borrowing. they're being buried by the obama administrations economic failures. >> reporter: biden later tried to dig himself out. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and the ryan supported. >> reporter: except for debate prep, it was a politics-
of the ball to the delivery of the plate. mitt romney's got to find precisely the right arm slot. aggression with the right amount of respect for a popular president. he's got to figure out a way to flush out his agenda without getting to the unpopular parts he's been avoiding talking about like what are the tax breaks he's going to take to get the rates down. he's got to be on offense but not too much. it's hard. everything went right for george bush in 2000. gore was bad, he had orange make-up. he got in bush's face, that didn't go very well. bush overperformed, no foreign policy experience, he did very well. and the bush team outspun the gore people because they pushed their story line. and you went from, you know, minus five before the debate to plus a couple afterward and went on to win that disputed victory. but yes, romney can do it, he was a smart guy, good in most of the debates for the republicans. on the other hand, obama's pretty smart too and there's not much expectation to think he's going to screw up. >> what about, john, playing to that dull incompetent thing? he said in his
. all right. >> reporter: governor romney studying president obama's past debates, which offers romney an opportunity to exceed expectations. republican chris christie predicting just that. >> shaking your head saying it is a brand new race. >> reporter: and running mate paul ryan hanging success on the debates. >> the debate phase in this campaign. we will make this case in our debates. >> reporter: that debate will be held here in denver. in the meantime, mitt romney held a rally here behind me. most of his t-unken. preparing for the most important night of his polil cpdaac ner. >>> and president obama is spending his last full day of debate prep at a resort outside st to deliver pza at abc political analyst matt dowd says mr. obama's advisers are focused on helping the president trim his often lengthy answers. to o bes often lengthy answers. answer questions, short, concisely, and to the point, and so it's much more like his mannerisms and his style and the way he comes across as 'posed to information in this. >> so style, not substance, i guess? i don't know. >> sounds like it. >>
to unsuspecting voters. >> andrea? hi. this is barack obama. how are you? that's right. >> reporter: it was just a brief break for the president, who, like romney, has been rehearsing for days. senator john kerry is playing the role of romney in president obama's practice sessions. the campaign is managing expectations, saying last night, the president is out of practice. the last time he debated was four years ago. and, rob and paula, according to the latest abc news/"washington post" poll, 56% of americans expect president obama to win the debates. mitt romney told voters yesterday, that the debates are about more than who comes out on top. they are the chance for a month-long conversation with the american people. >> managing expectations, as always. tahman bradley, live in washington for us. thanks, tahman. >>> and abc news coverage of the debate begins tomorrow night at 9:00 eastern, 6:00 pacific. keep right here on abc. >>> and there is word this morning of a series of secret meetings at the white house. focusing on the threat from al qaeda in north africa. "the washington post" says the m
do they blame the rich people? too.have moneyo, right now i'm supporting mitt romney. host: let's get a response. guest: i am sorry that you lost your job. what is says is our economy is not on track. president obama knows that and his message is, "give me four more years." the message from mitt romney is, "get out of here. you have had enough time." that will be a crucial issue. people are looking for those messages. guest: it tends to get lost. not blaming that on the financial mess. of course it will affect him and his political outlook and his vote if he has felt the sting of this recession and getting laid off. a lot of people have been out of work for a long time. some of the jobs may not be coming back. anybody from the romney camp may be looking for this caller. guest: lois romano was talking about the people that en.t jobs mostly were white ma republicans have traditionally gone towards republicans anyway. he has the ability to capture your vote. host: lauren ashburn is the editor in chief of "daily download." howard kurtz is an adviser to the "daily download." guest: brand c
, where do you think the presidential race is right now? >> i think mitt romney is looking very good. that's why the obama administration didn't want to run against mitt romney. he was clearly the most threatening of the republican candidates. i think he's the strongest candidate against obama. it's hard to take out an incumbent. republicans have only done it one time before in the last 100 years. when reagan beat carter. i guess isn't the last time it's happened when clinton took out bush, right? so it's curious, for example that there were 70 million viewers of that debate the other night, the highest it's been since 1992, the last time an incumbent was taken out. i think that's because people are uncomfortable with obama but if they're not political nuts, like we are, they haven't been paying attention, haven't been watching all the debates and they just want to see who the challenger is and whether they're comfortable with him. and i think after wednesday night, everyone's pretty comfortable with mitt romney. >> you were early, looking back, i was reading back on your twitter feed last
-building... right here at home. it's time for a new economic patriotism, rooted in the... belief that growing our economy begins with a strong... thriving middle class. read my plan. compare it to governor romney's,and decide for yourself. thanks for listening. i'm barack oma and i approve this message. >> you are watching abc 7 news at 5:00, on your side. >> today marks the tenures since the terrifying day when there was a shooting -- today marks 10 years since the terrifying day when there was a shooting. john allen muhammad his wife is telling a story. brad? >> yes alison, 10 years ago i stood in this spot. the second shooting took place at that gas pump. the police tried to figure out what on earth was going on with the so-called d.c. sniper. today, we had a chance to talk to mildred the ex-wife of john allen muhammad the d.c. sniper. she said that day she was terrified, like everybody else. she had no idea her husband was involved. one man was killed as he cut grass along rockville pike. later, one other was killed as he pumped-up -- pumped gas. another was killed at leisure world plaza. f
. the president is not going as -- is going as far as saying he's all right in these kinds of forums. clearly, what we know, is that these debates are important n. a race where the polls are putting the president ahead and not out of reach of mitt romney, it's the challenge who may have more to gain and lose. the president took a break from two days of debate rehearsals to visit one of his own campaign offices in las vegas. he brought pizza to the volunteers and made some phone calls to a couple of voters in the area and many were surprised to have the president of the united states on the other end of the phone. mitt romney picked up a big endorsement in the denver sports world, an icon of the denver broncos, the former quarterback john elway appeared with romney offering his support. when we spoke to two top officials from both campaigns, they said what is clear is that they're both trying to do what they can to reach out to voters who still have not made up their mind. >> it's really honing in on those policy specifics on the issues they care about and he in -- hope in the end that is what
today is that mitt romney will actually do his debate walk through tomorrow over at the university of denver, so he'll be working on this all, you know, basically right up until the last moment. he had his top surrogates on the campaign trail and romney has an event later on today in littleton, colorado. paul ryan has been pretty busy, almost nonstop, out on the campaign trail the last couple of days. and so, you know, i think he'll let his surrogates do the talking for him until the debate gets started. one other thing we heard from kevin madden yesterday on the campaign plane heading into denver yesterday, brooke, you heard over the weekend, chris christie saying that this race is going to be turned upside down that romney will have such a strong performance that it is going to be sort of a game changer. i asked kevin madden about that yesterday, and he said he doesn't think that the campaign doesn't think that one event, one moment during these debates is going to decide and determine everything. they just don't see it that way. they like christie's enthusiasm, they say they're
right now. there we are. that's where president obama and mitt romney will face off on stage. just one moderator, jim lehrer, of pbs. >> both candidates saying for months it will be crucial. >>> also, in this half hour, in this first half, a new showdown is heating up. a tree that almost killed, well, mcsteamy as you know him from "grey's anatomy." his wife was awe alone in the backyard. a tree fell on her from the next door neighbor's yard. a big legal battle brewing. >> and the lead singh from the smashing pumpkins. >>> first, we're going to get to the latest trouble for american airlines. a story we first brought you on "good morning america." another flight was forced to make an emergency landing last night. and abc's jim avila has been tracking all of the developments. jim, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, elizabeth. american pilots could be at the bargaining table as early as today, perhaps bringing to an end a string of delays that is crippling the reputation of the bankrupt airline which seems to be suffering one maintenance problem to another. this morning, the embattl
. >> yes. >>> we get right to the race for the white house. "your voice, your vote." just 32 days to go. and this morning, mitt romney, riding high from his debate win wednesday. president obama fighting back, promising to do better at the next debate. the questions right now, is this really a new race? how much of a difference will this morning's jobs report make? david muir is with mitt romney in harrisonburg, virginia. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning to you. both campaigns awaiting the new jobs report this morning. the president hoping for good numbers as he tries to turn the page on that debate performance this week. as mitt romney in virginia looks to build on his momentum. overnight here, the key battleground of virginia, mitt romney on a different stage. but it was that debate stage 24 hours earlier, still on his mind. >> last night, i thought was a great opportunity for the american people to see two very different visions for the country. >> reporter: deafening cheers and a swelling crowd of a debate performance that's rallied republicans. paul ryan, taking away
would write a bill says you can't have right to work. >> say romney wins, how quickly, in your estimation, do things turn around? what happens? what is the shift? to the extent, can you impact any of this? >> that's the caveat i was going to give you. >> i think whoever is elected president in a month from now, they will have to do major, major stuff. obviously you got two different ideologies, and i think if romney were elected, he's going to have to do major stuff, absorb major pain, but hopefully create a base from which the country can grow again. i don't think increasing meld i care is going to increase the growth rate of the country, and create more jobs, as an example. >> flip it around. if you take some of those things away, there is an argument to be made, and maybe you don't agree with it, there's going to be some pain at least in the short term. what does that do to the economy, in your views on where we ultimately go? >> i basically think that the last five years has been all about somebody sticking your finger in the dike. they didn't solve the problem. they stuck
for ronald reagan. is there a way -- are you doing anything to get into the race cycle with obama and romney? host: what do you say? we had a similar question from twitter. guest: right now i'm excluded from the first debate. the commission is the presidential debate commission and that is private and made up of republicans and democrats with no interest in seeing a third voice on stage. we have filed three lawsuits to get me on stage based on other third-party candidates who have there doesn't seem to be much hope. we filed on the antitrust round, -- browns. -- grounds. something that has not been done before. host: how much do these debates matter and what are you looking for to hearing on wednesday? guest: the debates are tantamount to me having a chance of winning. you can close the lid on winning the election. is winning getting enough votes to cause one of the other two who ends up winning to give more than just lip service to these issues? potentially. you know, steve, i view this as a victory every single day. there are so many people -- i think i speak on behalf of the majority of a
they blame the rich people? they have money, too. right now i'm supporting mitt romney. host: let's get a response. guest: i am sorry that you lost your job. what is says is our economy is not on track. president obama knows that and his message is, "give me four more years." the message from mitt romney is, "get out of here. you have had enough time." that will be a crucial issue. people are looking for those messages. guest: it tends to get lost. not blaming that on the financial mess. of course it will affect him and his political outlook and his vote if he has felt the sting of this recession and getting laid off. a lot of people have been out of work for a long time. some of the jobs may not be coming back. anybody from the romney camp may be looking for this caller. guest: lois romano was talking about the people that lost jobs mostly were white men. i think those are the votes that are in jeopardy. republicans have traditionally gone towards republicans anyway. he has the ability to capture your vote. host: lauren ashburn is the editor in chief of "daily download." howard kurtz i

's right, george. the speech was covered five years ago. though, not part of the remarks when then-senator obama ad-libbed. conserves are calling it explosive. the obama campaign is calling it a desperate attempt by romney's allies to change the subject. speaking to the largely african-american hampton university ministers conference in june 2007, then-senator obama went off his prepared remarks. using a different speaking style than usual, obama charged new orleans, post-hurricane katrina, was supposed to get disaster from the stafford fund. a requirement waived for other disaster victims. >> when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waived the stafford act. said this is too serious a problem. we can't expect new york city to rebuild on its own. >> reporter: same with hurricane andrew in florida, he said. but -- >> what's happening down in new orleans? there's your dollars? where's your stafford act money? makes no sense. tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. tells me that somehow, the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> reporter: beyond the accuracy
